Industrial waste optimization


Every year, hundreds of millions of tons of waste are generated by industries all over the world. Veolia offers to its customers an integrated waste management system to help them optimize their production flow, reduce transportation and landfilling costs and lower the impacts on the environment.

The nature of many industrial operations can lead to some highly-challenging obstacles when it comes to the safe handling, collection and disposal of waste materials.

In some cases, the waste may have hazardous and/or environmentally-harmful properties that require stringent attention to safety, compliance and environmental protection. More so, regulations are becoming increasingly stringent. In China, for example, the government has passed laws that prioritize environmental concerns over economic ones and give it the power to take action against polluting industries and company directors.

Veolia has the proven experience, expertise and technology to effectively and cost-efficiently address the broad variety of waste streams emitted from industrial plants guaranteeing the safe disposal of all waste, their maximum recovery reducing costs and environmental footprints.
